First Scrap Page EVER for ScrapFriends

Goodness gracious why don't I just show you my underwear drawer....

Oh since everyone else is, I guess I'll post this for the latest challenge over at Scrap Friends.

Since we are talking about underwear, let me explain why I made this page. I was lactating.

First baby, first important job, all that jazz.

I worked for a wonderful Fortune 500 Company and was blessed with a state of the art lactation room. I used to hang out there and read and pump carefully positioning the pumps up against the counter so I could hold a book. It was peaceful I tell you.

New baby was no picnic. She is now 12. She looks innocent in those photos but sleep and peace was at a premium....

Most women taped up photos of whom they were lactating for.

Not me, I've always been an overachiever when it comes to photos and crafty. I made a page of photos and taped up the page protector.

Anyone recognize THE MAN in there? He looks like quite the baby. Of course, my 12 year old barely fits on our laps these days. She eats like a horse even to this day.

Oh the memories! Come on, show us yours! I showed you mine. ;-)
